Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Yahoo suffered another major data breach in 2013. Discuss here if you think any of your personal information was compromised, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

It is very easy to criticise Yahoo and the like (e.g. TalkTalk in the UK) when something like this happens. However, Computer People have a saying:-

'The higher the wall one builds, the longer the ladder someone will construct to get over it.'

There are some very clever people out there.

Am wondering why this has only now been detected and made public over three years after it occurred.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Yahoo says something like 1 billion accounts could have been hacked. Are there even that many old people (aka potential yahoo subscribers) on the planet? haha

Same here, such as when I signed up from Computing.net, lol.
